it’s almost Chuckanut time!

“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” Vincent Van Gogh
What are the top five things on your bucket list? Is one of them to start sharing your story again? Well, luckily, the Chuckanut Writers Conference is back: a two-day event held at Whatcom Community College over the weekend of June 24-25, 2016. This conference brings together a wide range of writers and authors from all over the Northwest, with the aim of giving skills and tools to anyone at any level of experience with writing.
This year’s faculty is made up of nineteen incredible authors, agents, and publishing consultants who are offering a diverse chain of breakout sessions, author readings, pitch sessions, master classes, and keynote addresses. With so much happening, it’s going to be a jam-packed literary extravaganza!
We are rounding the corner on our sixth year, and are excited to see not only familiar faces, but new ones as well. A past conference attendee, Jordan Kubichek, had this to say about the experience: “I have attended this conference for the past four years. The information is always new and invaluable.”
If you want to get productive and creative this summer, I definitely recommend getting your feet wet and jumping straight into Bellingham’s literary community; we are family here, and we would like to make you a part of it! Together, as a writing community, we can write great things.
